Early June Garden Update

It’s still early in the growing season, but the greens are thriving, enabling us to have salads of baby purple kale (photo right, foreground), spinach (photo right, background), arugula, baby mustard greens and various baby lettuces.

The salads represent the first true eating (random radishes don’t count in my book) of what I’ve planted over the past two months, and there’s always something special (and delicious) about the first harvest.

The peas and garlic continue to flourish and will be ready soon, while seedlings of summer squash (three types), lemon cucumbers, string beans and basil have appeared in the two weeks since I seeded them.

In addition, the carrots, beets, turnips, Swiss chard and scallions continue their development.
